Our brains react to our world in milliseconds—faster than we’re consciously aware. And much of what drives our everyday decisions, including what we’ll watch, talk about and buy, are the emotional responses that can’t be measured through traditional self-report methods.
By using the latest neuroscience technologies in combination with traditional survey methods, we help brands understand consumers’ non-conscious and conscious emotional responses, memory activations and attentional patterns, empowering them to better navigate the increasing complexity of modern consumer behavior. Our insights provide actionable results and an unprecedented understanding of consumer related decision-making, allowing our clients to build deep, lasting connections with their target audiences.
Every brand is different, every challenge unique. By offering the most complete suite of cutting-edge, neuroscience-based tools at global scale, we can offer the proper solutions for each client’s particular needs. Since no single technology has a monopoly on the truth, we combine our tools to generate the most complete picture of the consumer.
Adopted by industry leaders globally, our proven technologies are complementary and state-of-the-art. These methods include:
We specialize in optimizing the effectiveness of video and digital advertising, packaging, in-store elements and much more. With our ability to test globally in the lab and in more natural environments, brands can deploy our breakthrough methodologies virtually anywhere at any time.
Nearly 20 Ph.D. and M.D. neuroscientists lead our research efforts, supported by a Science Advisory Board comprising members from leading academic institutions around the world. Our team has authored more than 550 peer-reviewed articles, won more than a dozen Great Mind Awards from the Advertising Research Foundation and secured the largest intellectual property portfolio in the pervasive neurotechnology industry.1
